I used some Figured Maple and almost lavender Purpleheart for this box. The Purpleheart has dark lines of grain in it. When it was in my shop and got dusty, it looked like corduroy fabric. They disapper when sanded and oiled. The Watco Natural Danish Oil darkened the color. I may have to try some water based poly to try to keep the light color. 11”x 10” x 6”

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Very pretty, but do you make it in walnut? :-)

Really is a nice box.
